Hi everyone,

Sorry I am well behind in doing that catchup with getting more of my art onto DA, but I now have finally started!! *Don't Faint* ;)
Yes there is now a bunch of new RPG illustration work up in my gallery, so go check it out!

I will be posting up more design work and coloured pieces of art work real soon also. The ordering maybe a bit mixed because there is now quite a lot to get uploaded all at once so as to catchup as much as possible but it at least gets it into my gallery for you to all see. :)

I will also be re-launching my brand new website, which is currently in construction and looking rather shiny so far. I will post and let you all know once it goes live so you can go check it out if you like and subscribe.

Right back to work and possibly more uploading here. ;)

Firstly apologies for being away from you all here on Deviantart and for any one who I have missed commenting back to.

It has been a crazy busy and life changing time for me over the past couple of years! To sum up some of what's been going on... I am now happily married to my wonderfully talented husband Nimrod (I'll have to change my surname here on DA) and have a beautiful 10 month year old girl called Freyja. I am currently now living in Cardiff, Wales, which I am enjoying, with lots of lovely new friends also added to the mix. :)

I have still been working as a Freelance artist/illustrator and designer. So yes I will have to most definitely catchup here on DA and get some of my new works up for show, plus I will be re-vamping my website this year and getting a blog properly going on.

Also just recently me and my husband just launched our brand new family-run games design company called Talking Skull. So as well as still carrying on my freelance work I will also be designing (and doing art for) a variety of different games. The first, called Faustus, was designed by my husband with the art by George C Cotronis (also known as RavenKult), which should be out by the end of this year preferably in October if possible. After that we then have several other games ranging form family, Euro-style and Deckbuilding, etc... in the works which I will be doing the art for.
It's going to be an exciting time (very busy!! But exciting.), though due to currently being a new, small family company we are in need of some help to get really going with getting off the ground. As you can imagine, it takes time to create games and do all the art so having some money to help support us so we can dedicate more time to working on our games and not having to just resort to only getting to work on them when we have a spare minute (which with our freelance plus a 10 month old proves almost impossible lol...). So we are doing a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo to try and reach a reasonable goal (potentially more if we can) which will give us the much needed boost/time so we can get the games out and rolling. So if anybody wants to be kind and help, even if its only just a very little, it will all help for us to try and reach this goal! We have also put up some Perks that you can get when you help contribute certain amounts, several of which involve prints of my art and even one perk now left (as one has now been taken) where you can have a custom painted dragon of your preferences. :)
So please please please if you fancy checking out our Talking Skull fundraiser and contributing a little to help me then go to:
www.indiegogo.com/talking-skul…
Also visit/like both our website and facebook page at:
talkingskull.co.uk
www.facebook.com/talkingskullu…

Thanks for reading through my lengthy posting, I shall be full catchup here on DA soon so keep an eye out for new art and updates to come. :)

It's been a while but I am back and definitely in need of updating my DA gallery, apologies to all who thought I had disappeared lol...

So to start will I have just uploaded some of my older B&W illustration work I did for the RPG Babylon 5 book: Lurkers Guide to Gaim, commissioned by Mongoose Publishing.
I thought it best to catch up with some of the older bits I never put up and then onto some slightly newer stuff. ;)
I think it should be interesting to see the differences between the older work (like what I have uploaded just now)to some of my new art which I will put up in my Gallery soon. :)
Enjoy.

Just realised that it has been a while since I posted more art up, which is naughty of me.

So here is a selection from the B&W illustrations I did in the Babylon 5 rpg book - Lurker Guide to Gaim. I did these some time ago now (around the beginning of the year) they were fun to work on as being Insect like the Gaim had fun shapes as well as there adaptations/ bio weapons.

Hope you enjoy. ;)
